Teaching Studio Reno

I was going through pics and realized I hadn't posted the end product of the home renos I had done just before Christmas. Until mid December I used my family room to teach piano. It's worked well but with Hannah coming home soon and my home being tiny and an open concept main level, it was time to have a portion of the basement finished and the piano studio moved down. It's a great place to teach and I really like the my main floor is back to being family space. Here are the reno in pics.

Along the way








Piano movers moving the piano...we were not about to attempt that!

The finished product! SO happy with this new teaching studio!!


Dad...my first 'student'. :o)

  1. It's fun to be able to say that I sat in that very couch (quite comfortably, I might add)! A beautiful job and even better to know that your family space is truly family space now.

  17. Beautiful! And I love that pretty decorative detail on the wall! This reminds me that we have a piano and should be starting lessons! What age is the best age to start the girls?
